Browse Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society Papers, 1848-1868
The correspondence series is largely made up of incoming letters to the Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society, particularly to officers Maria G. Porter and Anna M. C. Barnes.
The account book for the Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society covers its entire history. The secretaries of the Society recorded the finances of the organization, provided lists of speakers at their annual events, and carefully delineated money remitted to individual fugitive slaves.
The printed items in the collection include fourteen of the seventeen known annual reports of the Society, a report from the Toronto Ladies' Association for the Relief of Destitute Colored fugitives, circulars from two British societies, and issues of Frederick Douglass' Paper and The North Star.
